The Castle is a little haven of peace and quiet in Cowes, with a real old-style charm that is hard to find these days and a warm welcome from hosts Jenni and Harley. This is no modern corporate hotel, so if that's what you're after then keep looking. The Castle is like a home away from home, complete with log fire in the main lounge when it's cold. Jenni and Harley are wonderful hosts, real people with a sense of humour, no corporate-trained receptionists with plastic smiles here!
As a regular Castle visitor over a number of years I have sampled several different rooms. Often I'm travelling alone on business, and use the smaller rooms (Broadwater, Yackatoon) which are really nice with the adjoining lounge/kitchen area that is shared by the two rooms. I had never written a review before but recently my wife and I stayed in the Castle Suite which prompted me to write something (which I have finally got around to doing). It was really superb; spacious, luxurious, and private, with a lovely balcony over the garden. My wife was very happy, I'll be booking that one again!
